Floor Plan After: Accommodating Dormers
Full-length shed dormers yielded more usable space and 8-foot ceilings in the attic. The new bath claimed the exterior wall that the bedroom closet had backed up to.
1. Tapped into what had been dead space behind a bedroom wall. Plumbed for fixtures; added a window over the focal-point tub.
2. Removed the defunct chimney to make way for storage cupboards and for a walk-in shower roomy enough for a bench.
3. Built a double vanity along the wall that separates the bath from the walk-in closet.
4. Moved the doorway and created a short hall that leads to the adjacent closet and to the master bedroom.
